Five reasons to buy a new or used Honda Civic in Dubai, UAE
Fuel economy. With its 2-litre or less engine capacity fuel is cost efficient and doesn’t burn away at a rapid pace.
Any Japanese car are extremely popular for a number of reasons, and you can find plenty on the market. For this reason, second hand Honda Civic for sale in the UAE have an excellent resale value.
And here is the first reason, Honda Civics are reliable and easy to maintain and very few problems are accounted for.
Space is a must and with previous generations, there wasn’t a lot of it. 2016 models changed that by offering customers more legroom and foldaway rear seats.
For a compact sedan, it’s got some style, especially in 2016 trim. Looks like spaceship from the rear.
About the Honda Civic
Nine generations of the Honda Civic have gone by as 2016 marks its tenth. Proving to be popular not only in GCC but America as well, it’s sure to stay a while and continue fighting off the advances of the Ford Focus, Toyota Corolla and Hyundai Elantra and many other compact four-door sedans start to flood the market. Limited to not just sedans, the Civic name plate finds itself on hatchbacks, coupe and even a wagon at one point. It’s also got an impressive track record when it comes to racing mainly in touring car categories, perhaps one of the reasons why it is such a popular model among used cars in UAE.

Continuing to fight off the Corolla and Mitsubishi Lancer EX for sales in the compact sedan category, the Honda Civic returns with minor adjustments to the front end. Three trim levels are to choose from starting from LXi, EXi and topping out with the VTi. Standard options include 16-inch rims, CD player, cruise control, front airbags and air conditioning. LXi includes all of that and is the only one to swap out the auto gear for a manual one.
EXi gets all that except the manual gear and a few extras stability control, USB input, outside temperature gauge and an optional sunroof. At the very top is VTi, featuring all the other options in lower models and is equipped as standard with a sunroof, alloy rims, paddle shifters, chrome exhaust tips and side curtain airbags. It is also the only trim level to receive optional leather seats.
Only one engine is offered; a 1.8-litre four cylinder petrol motor powering the front wheels. 138 horsepower was channelled through a 5-speed manual or automatic transmission. In top trim 0-100 is achieved in 8.9 seconds and can reach a top speed of 205 km/h.
2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 Honda Civic
In 2012, the front end was slightly altered once again as were the rear taillamps. All three trim levels return and come standard with AUX input, keyless entry and air-conditioning. LXi trims received 15-inch steel rims, EXi trims have cruise control, on steering controls, Bluetooth options and rearview camera and 16-inch alloys. VTis have all of that plus the option of adding leather fabric.
2013 through 2015 features all the same options and trim levels while sporting another refresh to both the front and rear end.
Once again only one engine is on offer. Still a 1.8 litre four cylinder petrol motor, now though an additional one horsepower brings the total to 139 hp which is sent to the front wheels via a five-speed automatic gearbox and can it can reach a top speed of around 194 km/h. Those looking for a manual version will have to roll back a generation. Even though it’s the identical engine, fuel economy increased which is always a plus point.
2016 Honda Civic
Interested in buying a new Honda Civic? Honda did the right thing by overhauling the Civic in 2016, and now in its tenth generation, it’s certainly a step in the right direction. Glancing over at the Toyota Corolla or Hyundai Elantra, they look rather tame and dull.
Constructed from ultra-high strength steel, it not only keeps occupants safer, but it also weighs in at 31 kilos lighter.
So what else is new? Well, the tightened front end for starters, LED headlights and optional daytime LED running lights. The rear end sports futuristic taillamps giving the Civic a unique look, especially at night. Inside, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are fully integrated into the new 7-inch touchscreen display complete with navigation and Bluetooth options in full trim. Automatic climate control, electronic parking brake, power windows and power locks are all standard in base models.
Two engines are available; first up is the 2.0-litre four cylinder petrol motor. 158 horsepower is sent to the front wheels via a CVT (continuously variable transmission) with a top speed of just over 200 km/h and a 0-100 time of 8.5 seconds, certainly no slouch. The other engine is a 1.5 litre turbocharged inline-four petrol motor producing a healthy 174 horsepower. Still utilising CVT and a front wheel setup, 0-100 is achieved one second quicker and can reach a higher top speed of 210 km/h. Not bad for an economical car.
